The Fruit of Love

Posted: Thursday, April 12, 2007

The Fruit of Love is ripened

From a humble, friendly bloom,

Nurtured with a kind and caring hand.

Tasted for it’s sweetness

It withstands the test of Time...

Springing forth from even barren sand.

The Fruit of Love is ripened,

Shall I fill my basket then?

Shall I gather in it’s sweetness to my own?

Lest it rot upon the vine and tree,

And fall upon the ground,

For waste was not the reason it was sown.

The Fruit of Love is ripened,

Can I keep it in my heart?

Can I save it for a lonely, rainy day?

I will harvest every morsel

Of this precious gift I’m given,

‘Til Life’s Winter comes....and takes it all away.
